Lobster - It is Sunday and time for another sketch challenge at Sunday Sketch and Stamp.

This week, I made the sketch. I hope you like it and will come and play with us.
 I made my card using a sheet of  Tinsel and Twig by the Girls Paperie and ivory cardstock and a new stamp set by SU called by the Tide.

I used the scripted stamp on ivory cardstock and used my distress inks to color the paper. The lobster stamp was used and cut with a SB, then popped up on pop dots.

The seahorse was stamped and then embossed with SU's embossing glitter. It really has a nice sparkle in real life.

The pearls were made with a dark brown pearl pen. Most of the pearl pens, make a really nice rounded pearl, but for some reason the dark brown always flattens some. This one is the best that I have ever gotten with the dark brown.
